TO OUR PATIENTS
Where Experience Meets Technology
We want you to know that the health of our team and you, our patients is always our primary concern.
We want you to know that we have a well coordinated infection prevention program, dedicated to preventing transmission of any disease within our practice. We incorporate the most current recommendations from
Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) into everything we do.
For your safety and ours, we ALWAYS:
• Use EPA hospital grade disinfectants for comprehensive surface disinfection between all patient encounters
• Perform thorough hand hygiene at every appropriate opportunity to prevent the spread of disease
• Follow all CDC guidelines for disinfection and sterilization of instruments and devices
• Regularly confirm the effectiveness of our sterilizer(s) by laboratory testing
***WE ARE AVAILABLE TO CARE FOR YOU IF YOU HAVE A DENTAL EMERGENCY.***
All routine cleaning and non-emergency appointments have resumed at this time,
but are subject to change as circumstances evolve.
We look forward to seeing you at your next scheduled appointment. We want you to be confident we are doing everything possible to ensure we deliver the care you need to support your healthcare needs.

PREVENTATIVE AND PERIODONTAL (GUM) TREATMENTS
Periodontal disease is one of the most common diseases known to man. It is easily manageable and often reversible. We offer basic hygiene service in addition to Laser gum treatments and advanced periodontal surgical treatments.
In addition, at no charge, we offer a visual oral cancer screening exam at every check up for our patients using the Velescope...a state of the art lesion detection system that evaluates the natural fluorescence of all tissue and shows variations from normal. Although it is not a cancer test in itself, it identifies areas that need additional attention which would be missed by the naked eye.
Dr. James has a passion for making you look your best. Your best smile may be affordable and within your reach. Sometimes, the smallest changes can make the biggest difference so don't have your mind made up until you talk with Dr. James. He is a Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and will do a full cosmetic analysis and fully discuss your situation with you.
Fillings don't have to look like fillings anymore. Teeth should look like Teeth! Today's restorative materials such as composite white fillings, porcelain inlays and crowns offer strength and aesthetics.
Also, with Dr. James' state of the art laser treatment, some new restorations and replacement of tooth colored restorations can be done easily and comfortably with no more annoying shots or numbness when you leave the office!
Our "Purely Natural Dentures" and "NO Hook Partial Dentures" provide for a natural pleasing smile with excellent function and durability. Cross-link polymer teeth give a more natural feel and efficiency than old style porcelain denture teeth. Just because you know you are missing teeth doesn't mean that everyone else has to.
In addition, if your having problems keeping your lower denture in place, your solution to a floating denture is the Imtec-3M MDI implant system. Have the confidence and comfort knowing your lower denture will stay put so you can speak and chew without your lower denture moving.
We offer the full range of services for pulp (nerve) problems. Whether a desensitizing base or full root canal treatment to root tip surgery, our materials and techniques offer the most current therapies. Microscopes and rotary instrumentation allow for quick, precise treatment. Root Canal treatments don't have to be the dreaded procedures they used to be.
Want to turn back the clock? Our combination treatment of night trays and in-office power bleaching with a light might be just what you are looking for. Safe for teeth and gums, our treatments are customized for you to get the maximum benefit nature will allow.
MINOR TOOTH MOVEMENT
Just have one or two teeth that don't seem to be in the right place? With "Raintree Essix" orthodontic system, clear "invisible" positioners are custom made to put things in place. Comfortable and removable, these appliances give you flexibility with your treatment and lifestyle. You just have to wear them!
